Re: kindle or android tablet, for mom?

Thanks for all your help guys! We ended up getting her a nexus 7 4G. Not quite sure how it works yet, like since theres no sd slot if I can use some sort of usb stick or not, but I'll figure it out before tuesday so I can teach her.

Do any updates NOW before the servers get swamped.

Do you have wifi at your house? Yes, I know the one you bought has 4G...

Also, look in a free Dropbox (or similar) account. Makes it easy to transfer data off of existing computers.

Yeah we got wifi, but ALL the non 4g ones at every store we called(within a 1 hour drive of our house) were sold out. Even most of the 4g ones were gone, only microcenter(really not a surprise) had even the 4g left.

I have a skydrive(edit: its a 25GB account) account, and I think google has its own thing for could back up. but yeah dropbox does sound like a good alternative.

Good on the wifi. It will keep the data charges down if you are using your home connection.

There is using Stickmount app but you need root access for it to work. Dropbox is a good alternative.
